More About Horror and the Holy by Kirk J. Schneider
 
 
 
Overview
Dr. Schneider draws upon a detailed and telling analysis of eleven well-known horror stories: "Dracula," "Frankenstein," "The Phantom of the Opera," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Invisible Man," "The Incredible Shrinking Man," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," "The Birds," "Forbidden Planet," "Vertigo," and "Alien." He finds that a spiritual understanding of life can be attained through horror. Classic horror steers a middle path between fanaticism and despair: the path of wonderment. Horror teaches us that the human personality is paradoxical, that revulsion and disgust are the obverse of excitement and freedom, and that both poles are vital to individual, social, and ecological well-being.
